Haven't been here since the establishment changed hands, so thought it was time to give it a go and was very pleased we did. A nice warm welcome (the place was very busy) and a promise that the next table would be kept for us if we wanted to wander off for five minutes. The menu was reasonably priced, and... More

Went there with friends for a birthday meal. My starter of deep fried crab tasted of nothing and looked like it had been thrown on the plate. Main course was little better. Although the restaurant was not full, we barely had time to breathe after our starter before the main course arrived. Felt very rushed. Little atmosphere. Having said that... More

Superb meal full of flavours that play with your tastebuds. Quality ingredients expertly prepared that transport you to another sunnier place. The owner chef Denis is a delightful gentleman who welcomes you warmly, treats you with respect and serves you a fabulous culinary experience in a homely welcoming environment. It's an experience you shouldn't miss. We'll be back!!

The room is well themed and nicely decorated with some nice attention to detail. The restaurant is set in a really nice part of the city in a nice location. The... More

Absolutely wonderful food especially the fish! You must try the Barracuda! A brilliant restaurant offering something you can't find elsewhere in Norwich!

Having lived in the Caribbean for several years, we were intrigued to sample the food at Chez Denis. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent, with typical Caribbean flavours. We will return for second helpings next time we are in Norwich.
